I'm having a hard time understanding why people think this is a low offer. If it's a $30 million guaranteed contract, and he plays for two years, he'll bank $42 million dollars. That's not bad for two years worth of work.
Year 1: $36 million ($30 million plus $6 million)
Year 2: $42 million
Year 3: $48 million
Year 4: $54 million
Year 5: $60 million
Where are people getting the idea that this is low ball? He's only going to see year 3 in this contract anyway. That's $16 million a year. Not bad at all.
